“Fantastic place”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I've just returned from a weekend staying in the boat house with my wife and two friends and can agree with all the other positive reviews. It was really easy to find and exactly as pictured and if anything the pictures don't really do it justice. Fantastic apartment fully equipped with everything you need and he had even gone as far as leaving a bottle of wine, Dutch waffles and cheese snacks as a welcome gift. Can't speak highly enough of the accommodation, booking service or communication, all a great trouble free experience that I would thoroughly recommend to anyone

“Loved it”
Reviewed 1 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Such a great location, quiet and peaceful yet so close to everything you need. Loved being right on the water and the house is beautiful. We did take advantage of the boat trip offered to us and glad we did. With a friend and my three quite young children still lots of space. They loved playing in the nearby water fountains. Do hope to return one day.

“Perfect place!”
Reviewed 3 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This apartment is absolutely ideal - it's close to transit, groceries, restaurants, and shops, but is completely quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed checking out the bustle and crazy scene downtown at night, but we're glad we were not staying in a place that was in the middle of the late night noise and traffic.
Wouter and Lisbeth are helpful and friendly, and the extra options they offer ( boat ride, airport pick up etc) are really nice. Wouter is so knowledgable about the history of the city, canals, boats, etc, so the boat ride with him is fun and full of useful information.
We loved the apartment and found it comfortable, clean, and well - equipped. Whenever we looked around for something, there it was.
We would love to return to Amsterdam and would definitely try to stay here again.

“Perfect Family Rental: location, amenities, and view!”
Reviewed 24 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had the pleasure of renting their 2 bedroom boat house apartment over Spring break. With two teens, plenty of lounge space and wifi are always critical to a happy vacation. This apartment is spacious, light, and well-appointed with all needed amenities. The view from the living/dining room area overlooks the canal and there are two docks outside to sit on while sipping a glass of wine. The owners are very nice, and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The IPOD docking station was a nice touch! It was a treat to listen to our music while cooking or planning our day.

The location is about a 10-15 minute walk from the train station, heading West. It's an easy walk, but if you are pulling bags you'll be contending with cobblestones. The location is nice because it's close to the #3 tram which heads to the museums, about a 15 minute tram ride. We walked everywhere else. There is a main shopping street that runs along the neighborhood there with many restaurants, grocery stores, "coffee shops", and more. It took us about 10 minutes to walk to the Ann Frank house, and about 15 minutes to Dam Square.

If you are looking for a spacious, well-appointed rental that is peaceful in the evening, and located in a lovely, safe neighborhood, then the Boat House is for you!

They do have bike rentals but we did not use them. We did take advantage of the personal one hour canal cruise and loved it! The owner's neighbor did the tour, and told us lots of history and personal stories to go along with it.

Getting to and from the airport: We took the train from the airport (easy to do) and walked from the train station using the directions the owner provided. The tickets were only E4 each. The taxi drivers at the airport seem to be unregulated crooks who wanted to charge us E15/person with no meter! Our return flight was early in the morning so we opted to hire a private car (the owner provided) for E35.
